How consumers would use the national whole chain traceability system
This research and extension effort is focused on creating a traceability system that is useful for all supply chain users, from consumers, ranchers, packers, to government agencies. The National Whole Chain Traceability Institute (NWCTI) project directors are Michael Buser, associate professor in the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering; and Brian Adam, professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics, both of Oklahoma State University.
The food traceability market is projected to grow about 9% from 2014 to reach $14,304.9 million by 2019. The growing buyer concern for food safety and increasing incidents of food mishaps are among the operating factors for the food traceability market. Even so, the high cost paid for by the food industry for traceability equipment, and the privacy issue involved are restraining the growth of the market. The continuous development in emerging markets such as Brazil, India, and China areopening up new opportunities for the food traceability market.
Traceability is the foundation to mitigating food safety, defense risks, and reducing vulnerabilities in your supply chain – you cannot solve a problem you don’t know you have!
